When Bourne exposed Blackbriar, the Asset, who was working as one of the program's agent, was captured and tortured by the terrorists he had infiltrated. The CIA took two years to free him. After that, he held a grudge against Bourne.
During a chase in Greece, the Asset kills Nicky Parsons and later tracks Bourne to London, intending to kill both him and Malcolm Smith, a former Treadstone surveillance operative.
Later at a convention in Las Vegas, the Asset is ordered to take out Aaron Kalloor and Heather Lee, but Bourne stops the assassinations. After Lee kills Dewey, Bourne chases down the Asset in an intense car chase and eventually corners him in a sewer, where he kills him in a brutal hand-to-hand fight by breaking his neck.
- The Asset was the first major villain to fight Jason Bourne in the films.
- Curiously, The Asset and Jarda are two villains who attempt to strangled Jason Bourne during the fights.
